this weekend we celebrated my mom’s parents 50th wedding anniversary. my grandparents are still so in love after many, many obstacles they had to overcome. the first being that they were only 16 and 17 when they were married, and no one was really in favor of this, except for them 🙂 When my great-grandmother found out they were planning on getting married, she called ahead to the justice of the peace and told them to refuse marrying them! my grandmother worked at simmons mattress company and my grandfather was a barber. shortly after they got married they became pregnant with my mom and had NO money. i think sometimes scott and i are poor, but they were definitely poor. for mom’s first christmas they had $1.00 to spend on a gift for her so they bought her a teddy bear. their story is really incredible and very romantic. here are some pictures of the party!
here they are on a date.
aren’t they cute?
my parents 🙂
it was a fun night and definitely neat to see my grandparents celebrate their marriage!
